    Resting beans after roasting...

    A non transparent bag with a one way valve... *Uncovered if you wish to possible hasten the process.. But *once again.. The issues is all teh variables *::)

    1: Temp
    2: Humidity
    3: Air flow
    4: Light / UV
    5: Air volume... In a cupboard or on da bench *::)
    6: Pets that like to nibble beans *;D

    Every option has pros and cons.. *Just like making a coffee.. Find what works for you and be HAPPY.

    The sealed bag tends to put things on an even playing field and you can compare across the WORLD.. Open to the elements and no two will ever be the same or repeatable.. Unless you have your own controlled Atm room.

    As Java "always got an opinion" Phile *has been known to say.. Stop with all the reading and research and just enjoy *8-)

    Read recently (cant find it out now - I did try) where someone quoted a professional roaster bagged the cooled beans at around the 29 to 30 degree Celcius mark.

    That would probably be me. If you search for posts by me containing 90F youll find a few that Ive made about this over the years. :)

    Re: Resting beans after roasting...

    I find the search here quite good.

    The main caveat is to ensure that the time period searched is modified from the default of one week.

    Greg, stuart - I use both those criteria and I get pages of rubbish with completely no relevance to the key word... Also have my profile time set correctly yet replies come into my email inbox with date/time up to 7 days ahead - ie. Gregs response in carrying the time stamp 3:46am 23/10/09 :-?

    Id say your computer doesnt know what time it is, or there is something else wrong. Have you tried clearing your caches?

    I have no such issues at all.

    This is the only site I have the time/date issue - cache, cookies and any other personal data are automatically cleared when I close FF... Im not too worried about it but search, I can count on one hand the number of sites I visit that have an effective search system...

    Its not the forums.. It will be a setting some where or even in the profile.. If ya set teh wrong region it will adjust to GMT.. A neat feature is your time stamping and wish to play games with peoples minds :-)

    Search in CS as well as many other forums is a no brainier - ONCE you understand the way they work... Some features are shut down as it can over load even a great server / data base.

    Go to the CS STICKY topic on how to use the CS search features as well as having GOOGLE do it for you... Using the Google search also by passes some of the forums restrictions...

    Ive found the simple search box at the top of the page to be next to useless, but the actual Search Page itself can be customised & modified to produce some decent results.

    If the default options could be set to All time and One result per thread that would be more helpful I think. Can this be done, anyone?

    Cant be done as far as I know. I think it would be an admin job to change the default search preferences. Best best would be to send Andy an email but be mindful that a default of "All posts" would create a fairly big server hit it it was done every time seacrh was used.

    For the few occasions I search CS, getting into the habit of changing the "This post was made in the last..." and "Display only one result per thread?" when needed isnt really that big a chore.

    Errol made a great post with some great tips and is a sticky http://coffeesnobs.com.au/YaBB.pl?num=1248646363

    It should be a Sticky on/IN ALL topics *and that might reduce the search issue by a few %...

    Settings to the default search setting would solve some of the other users issues *by a few more %... * *:-[ *

    Doubt it will ever solve the large majority as most dont search and or dont understand know and just expect that every forum has people waiting on line to solve their problems ASAP *;D

    CS is very good in this aspect and we make a noose for our selves... *Some of the forums I belong to will delete ya post with no warning if it is *clear that you have no used the search feature.. *A bit elitist; but it cuts down on every one recreating the same wheel. *Thus less overhead and less frustration by those providing lots of advice..

    Yes CS could look at *some How tos and FAQ sections on some equipment ie... Silvia and teh EM6910 for eg. But it takes effort and man power..

    Some one should actually do up a bookmark of Favourites - And have any number of usable links ie - Rules / Posting / Searching including other sites etc... (http://home.surewest.net/frcn/Coffee/HowToRocky.html ) And have it as a download / import function in their browser.. Even added to the CS ToolBar ..

    Oh what have we become... Why can not people learn to think 4 them selves... :(

    Back on topic: one-way valve bag em when theyre warm is the way Ive found best across all my roasts. Open to elements go stale too quickly and dont develop the same flavours as a valve-bagged one. Dunno why it happens, but my tastebuds tell me so.
